Reliable sources close to Karthik Subbaraj confirm that the team wants to rope in Vijay Sethupathi as the villain opposite Rajinikanth in the recently announced project.
A source adds, “Vijay is a big fan of the Superstar, and he’d love to play the antagonist. He has no apprehensions of doing a negative role because it has happened already with Sundarapandian and Vikram Vedha. Also, Vijay and Karthik know each other for a long time. So, the actor is open to working with a long-time associate.”
The shoot of this yet-to-be-titled film, bankrolled by Sun Pictures, may begin post April after Kaala gets released. Ever since its launch, there’s been a lot of buzz about the project on social media.
